Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Hands

Lois J. Funk

Mother's hands were busy hands,

But never did they fail
To take the time to tie a bow

Or braid a loose pigtail.

And never did those hands refuse

To soothe a fevered brow,

So even injured dolls pulled through

In Mother's hands, somehow.

It seemed those hands were magic,
Always knowing where to start

To reconstruct a shattered dream

Or mend a broken heart.

Dear Lord, I pray, as years go by,

Whatever life's demands,

That I may give just half the love

I've found in Mother's hands.

Missing you more than you could ever know, Happy Mother's Day, Mama!
I love you!

What a darling she was! Thank you for posting this beautiful poem and adding your loving note. I just completed my Mother's Day post and was missing my mother too (and I also called her Mama).
Have a sweet sweet day.

What a beautiful tribute to your Mama! I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful and filled with those who love you and those you love!

Cute Mama!
I realize I am more fortunate than most 63 year olds because I still have my mom. I cherish every moment.
Hugs to you.
